female circumcision in Egypt is still one of the most controversy issue between Muslim clerics and the NGOs concerning human rights, the question raised up, is female circumcision allowed or out of Islamic law.
Female circumcision between religion and civil society
The Egyptian social activist, the chair- person of national council for motherhood and childhood, ambassador Moshera khattab said that female circumcision is not an Islamic habit but it is an African habit,gross world physicians refuse it, and from Islamic perspective (fatwa) is variable according time and ages, she added.
The social activist denounces doctor doing this surgery and she said it is not acceptable to remove an vital organ has a job from a young girl were she dose not have any decision, under allegations and hieratic myths have no any religion or science reality, this bad habit abuses the human dignity of a week creation, resulting a physical and psychological pain along girls live.
Many of Egyptian Muslim scholars including Mohamed Saied Tantawy ( the grand shikh of Alazhar), Dr. Ali Gomaa ( the Egyptian moftii) are supporting this opinion and calling Muslims to stop this bad habit which is construct with Islamic teachings which disallow harming people with all forms and colors.
Also this issue is controversy even in physician perspective, little of physician in Egypt supporting female circumcision saying that this habit is good and healthful. But the logic response that the judgement in this issue is just back to (medicine not physicians) it is meaning that the applied rule in this issue is from the concern of knowledge basics of medicine and what is wrote down in medical references locally and internationally, and the opinion and practises of medical institutions which has a good reputation in this field, away of practises of little number of physician aiming only to get money, so we can conclude that the medicine opinion could be expressed by refusing.
There is no even one reference in any medicine faculty mentioned surgery so-called (female circumcision surgery) and the great majority in Egypt are refusing this kind of surgery.
It is worthy to refer that the Egyptian national council for motherhood and childhood receives 5 m$ from an international non-governmental organization to fund the campaign on (criminalizing female circumcision).
